“Just Jot It January #22–Fun Simplicity” by Linda Martin Andersen
I accepted a challenge for January: Just jot a note and submit. I can’t participate every remaining day this month, but I will join in when I can.
I decided to create a theme to write about: I chose “celebrate” which I combined with today’s prompt, “Fun Simplicity.”
Today, I Celebrate Fun Simplicity
Did you know that “fun” is a basic need? It’s not just for kids. Everybody needs it. There are other basic needs of course, but this is definitely an important one.
If I get grumpy, a self-check often reminds me that it’s time for some fun. Once an uncle of mine went to see a doctor about a rash on his hands. The physician asked my uncle who had a stressful job what it was he wanted to do that he wasn’t doing. My uncle said, “Deep sea fishing.” After going fishing, his rash was gone. Hmmm.
- Name several things you call fun. Tell more about something on your list.
- Why isn’t “fun” the same for everyone?
- What would you say in response to “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy?”
- What is your number one favorite way to have fun?
